A team of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is rescuing the injured.

Mumbai: At least three people were killed and six others injured when a two-storey under-construction structure in a chawl collapsed on Sunday morning, police said.

The incident took place at around 9.15 am at Motilal Nagar in Goregaon (West) when the slab of the two-floor building gave way during construction, an official said.

The structure was part of a chawl (tenement) of the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada), he said.

Fire brigade and police personnel rushed to the spot after getting information about the collapse and started a rescue operation. At least three fire engines, one rescue van and an ambulance were deployed for the operation, the official said.

Nine people trapped inside the debris were rescued and rushed to Siddharth Hospital in Goregaon.

A 27-year-old man, Shravan Kumar Goremandal, was declared dead on arrival and one Subhash Chavan (38) and an unidentified person also succumbed to their injuries. Three of the injured, Mangal Bansa (35), Munna Shaikh (30) and Shekhar (35), were admitted in the hospital, while the others discharged after treatment.
